UEFA president, Aleksander Ceferin has revealed that the Champions League and Europa League could be abandoned if coronavirus remains till September.
In an interview with ZDF Sportstudio, Aleksander Ceferin said, “We can’t play it out in September or October.”
He added that if authorities stop them from continuing with the season, they are ready to do so.
“If the authorities do not allow us to play, then we cannot play.”
“The fact is that we really don’t know much,” Ceferin stated.
“We are waiting for the development of this terrible situation in the world, and mainly in Europe.”
“It is still better to play the game behind closed doors and have it on TV, which is what the people need and want because it brings positive energy to their homes than not playing at all.”
“That’s what the people want, that brings positive energy, and it will be July or August.”
Champions League and Europa League matches are currently suspended until further notice.
